been going to this place (franklin and bronson) with increasing frequency. the pork short-rib sandwich is very good, as is the burger. also, the italian breakfast sandwich with fried egg, pancetta, fresh mozz on tuscan sourdough is pretty spectacular.

    I like their burger. The bacon on that thing is amazing.

      i'll have to try out the sandwiches then - my experience with the pizzas and salads have been disappointing. salads are ordinary with oily dressings, and the pizza crust is soft and lacking flavor. the toppings are decent but the crust doesn't hold up unless you take it home and crisp it up in the oven. it doesn't have that good satisfying chew to it.

        Been in there a few of times to pick up morning pastries & prepared items. Prepared items seem grossly overpriced w/ quality not matching the prices. Service each time was blase with a lackadaisical attitude so really turned me off to the idea of eating there. And that's just to get my order of coffee & pastry. Hey, kid, it's ok to stop texting when there's a customer waiting! Maybe I'll give it another go. Is table service any better?!

          I love their burger and go often for their grilled cheese nights on Wednesdays. Love it!
